The quality of materials Cherry used here isn't surprising for a handset with one of the top features for the price. It uses an metallic looking plastic unibody with criss-crossed textured back design and chrome painted upper sides. On top, there's its screen is using a real glass with unspecified type of protection against scratches.
Putting metal frames here would have been better, but I would not complain as it feels a more than decent for its low asking price.The feel of this handset is acceptable in durability-wise. While we should not expect it to be as tough as real metal clad phones, the Flash feels solid enough and has decent heft (weight) for a nearly all plastic device.

Going to the aesthetics, the Flash is one of their better designed phones. We can say that Cherry is successful in mimicking metal clad phones with this one. It's criss-crossed textured back cover is highly appealing, has beautiful curves, slim profile, doesn't feel big for a 5.5 inch device, and has noticeably lesser side black bezels on the screen.
The Flash is a live testament that plastic phones won't look cheap if made right.In terms of ergonomics, Cherry did a good job here as the Flash a well-thought-of handset. It's easy on the hands as its textured back and curves all over provided us with the good grip we wanted on a phone. That's something not often achieved by affordable phones.
All its buttons and ports were also on the more standard side as they're easy to locate. The fingerprint scanner placement at the back is brilliant, the volume rocker and power button on the right is just right for the size, and everything else feels okay.
However, Cherry forgot something here where they failed to add lighting in its capacitive keys. That will make it a little harder to use if you're not used to Android keys in the dark.
